[this is] A place for people with intense interests and the intense desire to have their work seen, used, applied.
[this is] A place with pride in fostering creative independence, supportive culture, eclectic learning and skills, and appreciation for the enormous variety of creativity that exists.
We recognizes the power of connection, understanding, support, and empathy as the basis for powerful creative community.
We recognize markets exist and the need for profit exists to survive.
Team seeks to understand and document, then showcase the work.
Your values are your own, and it's ok that they are different than others.
Your work speaks for itself, not your social value.
I feel that these quotes are kind of "meh"...I am not moved by them. Perhaps tomorrow I'll think of something more appealing.
